The Bornstein Award for Faculty Scholarship is given each year for outstanding scholarship and creative endeavors bringing national attention to Rollins College.
Political science professor Julia Maskivker has received the 2021-2022 Bornstein Award for Faculty Scholarship. Her scholarship on justice, global ethics, and citizenship has helped put Rollins in the national spotlight since she came to the College in 2009. Maskivker’s body of work includes op-eds in The Washington Post, the Orlando Sentinel, and Quartz. Her 2019 book, The Duty to Vote, was critically acclaimed for its argument that citizens have a moral duty to vote. She has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in addition to two other books on political philosophy.
On campus, Maskivker teaches courses ranging from introductory political theory to advanced ethics, law, and philosophy seminars. She serves as an advisor in the Rollins pre-law program and works with the Democracy Project, a non-partisan student organization devoted to upholding the democratic process. Over the years, Maskivker has served the Rollins community through her work with the Office of International Student & Scholar Services, where she supports eligible students in their efforts toward citizenship and naturalization.
